Book Description
Leaving Newfoundland tells the dramatic story of the people of Newfoundland and Labrador and their bid to survive in a place of uncompromising hardship. The continual conflicts with a bleak environment, unjust laws, and a disinterested colonial master that simply wished them to go away are realistically described herein. As the trickle of out-migrants turns into a flood, the hardships of the province are replaced by new challenges and setbacks. New skills, new customs, and new lives must be formed out of the clay of the old. With their feet on a new land but their hearts firmly entrenched in the old, Newfoundlanders and Labradorians must survive in new worlds not their own. Global issues of today have great and unexpected consequences for the entire province
